  1. Determine if you're eligible

    All midwives in the Yukon must register, hold a territorial licence and renew it every year. Complete this process if you hold a midwife inactive licence and want to renew it.

    Renewal period

    All midwife licences expire annually on March 31. Submit your renewal application before March 1. This ensures we can process your application before your licence expires.

    If you do not renew

    The deadline to renew is March 31. If you miss this, you must:

    • apply for reinstatement; and
    • pay the reinstatement fee.

    Eligibility

    You're eligible to renew an inactive licence if you currently hold the licence for the Yukon.

    If you’ve had any complaints, disciplinary or criminal action against you, we:

    • will assess your case; and
    • may not approve your application.

  2. Complete the renewal application form

    Download the renewal application form.

    Complete all sections of the form. Do not leave a section blank. You may enter “not applicable” when it’s relevant.

    Tips

    • At the top of the application form, choose “inactive.”
    • We may return incomplete applications.

  3. Provide all required supporting documents

    Criminal record check

    You must submit a new criminal record check every 2 years.

    • Contact your local RCMP or police detachment to request a check.
    • The RCMP or police must complete the check no more than 90 days before you submit your renewal application.
    • Ask the RCMP to:
      • send the results to your mailing address; or
      • make the results available for you to pick up.
    • Submit the results with your complete application package.

    If you lived or practised midwifery outside of Canada

    If this was in the 12 months before your renewal application, you must also provide a criminal record check from that jurisdiction.

    If it’s been 2 or more years since your most recent record check from that jurisdiction

    Have the check completed no more than 90 days before the date of your renewal application.

    Certificate(s) of standing

    • You must provide a certificate of standing from:
      • all jurisdictions where you’re currently licensed; and
      • every jurisdiction you have practised midwifery in within the past 12 months.
    • Each certificate must be dated no more than 90 days before your application.
